          Yes, select the image and choose Object > Object Export Options. Choose the Float Right or Float Left options in the Custom Layout section. (Note the image is anchored into the text flow.) See below:

            Thanks for this but before I resume I need to explain what I did here. All the text is threaded with the images surrounded with text using the word wrap.

             

            The images are in different spots on each page so question 1 would be "will the images all be either left or right in the epub? Or appear where they are now?

             

            second, I did NOT anchor the images to any text, I'm assuming this will NOT work unless I do this?

             

            I'm presently using the articles panel but when using this I have to break the text and UNthread each page or the entire text will come first and the images last. I used a script to break the threads in one saved version and have another version with the threaded text intact.

             

            So do I keep the text threaded and anchor all images and output using the articles panel then select object export?

             

            OR

             

            Unthread the text, anchor the images ( OR NOT) and use the layout export option?

             

            The book is large and haas a lot of images.

             

            thank you for this info , please advize

              It sounds like you need some basic information about EPUB before you can proceed on a large project. You absolutely need to anchor or create inline graphics. Otherwise, your graphics will not retain their position. They'll be orphaned from the text they're near to a different spot, usually at the end of the chapter!

               

              Start with these two best sources:

               

              (1) eBooks by Elizabeth Castro, inexpensive, available at her website:
